What would YOU give me? :)

Hi a lot of you have seen and commented on my GCSE video (thanks been really helpful) here it is if you havent seen it

This is the mark scheme so Im wondering if you were the examiner what would you give me? (Go to page 123 and 124)


BTW I know I dont have a 2'9 X country course so thats why i added extra stuff to make up for it. I didnt know I needed X country and obv with weather atm and not having a horse I cant get it :/
I know that I am behind the movement some of the time etc but as I still get everything done in decent balance + effectiveness I dont think I'd get marked down for it fingers crossed xxx

I wish i could afford to print out the documents and read them. It looks like there might be some interesting things.

So, I'm not really going to critique your riding, but tell you what I think if I was an examiner. There are things that missed on their list that they wanted you to be able to do. I know you don't have a cross country course right now, thats fine. However, they want you to show putting a halter on, leading the horse, mounting and dismounting. These are simple things that you could easily add to the video, and I would really recommend putting them in, its easy points! If this were me examining the video I would like to see longer clips of you riding. For example for a downward transition you have a few seconds of a canter and then trot. To be able to see if you really have a good knowledge of the aids and control I would rather see you in a consistent canter maintaining a good pace, and then ask for the downward transition. I don't think at any point you would be marked down for your riding skills, but I do think you can showcase them better.
